Jailed Brazil ex-president Lula now a World Cup commentator

Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva may be in prison, but that hasn’ t stopped a Brazilian TV station from hiring the ex - president as a 2018 World Cup football commentator.
“ This is not a joke , ” said Jose Trajano, who hosts the daily program at the Sao Paulo -based VTV network on which the ex -president ( 2003- 2010) will opine.

Lula was jailed on April 7 and is serving a 12-year sentence for accepting a bribe . The 72-year- old leftist politician insists on his innocence and says the case is politically motivated . Lula “ will write down his impressions and send them to us , and we will put them on the screen, in quotation marks , and read them on the air , ” said Trajano, a veteran Brazilian sports journalist.
Despite his incarceration , Lula remains popular and is far ahead in a poll of candidates in Brazil ’ s October presidential election .

The first contribution by the prisoner -sports analyst -presidential candidate will air on Monday , one day after Brazil ’ s first 2018 World Cup match against Switzerland.
Lula was allowed a TV set in his cell immediately after he was jailed in the federal police headquarters in Curitiba , initially to follow Corinthians , his beloved football team.
While jailed , Lula has sent written messages through intermediaries to his supporters that were widely disseminated on social media by the Worker ’ s Party ( PT ) .
